REPORT Of THE STATE LIBRARIAN. 



To the Honorable Board of Library Trustees of the California State 
Library: 

Gentlemen: I have the honor to submit my report covering the 
transactions of the State Library for the sixtieth and sixty-first fiscal 
years, ending June 30, 1910. 



FINANCES. 

Balance on hand July 1, 1908 $0,340 1G 

Amount received during sixtieth and sixty-first fiscal years 109.058 30 



Total $110,304 40 

Expenditures during sixtieth and sixty-first fiscal years 109.110 75 



Balance, July 1, 1910 $7,187 71 



A detailed financial statement is appended (Appendices A and B), 
showing debits and credits for each fiscal year; also total expenditures 
for the biennial period (Appendix C). 

On February 20, 1909, the act of the legislature increasing the 
monthly fund of the State Library from $3,500 to $5,000 was approved. 

STAFF. 

During the past two years we have had several changes in the staff; 
but in the following list I have thought best to include the names of all 
persons who have been employed by the Library during this biennial 
period. For purposes of comparison we have often looked in library 
reports for schedules of salaries, but very seldom have we found them. 
I believe it would materially benefit library workers if salary lists were 
given more freely. In this report salaries are given and increases are 
also shown.

KKI'OKT OF THE STATE UHRARIAX. 



BOOKS. 

A tabulated statement of the number of books in the Library June 
30, 1910, and tin- number added during the past two years will be found 
under Appendix I). The expenses incident to moving back into our 
remodeled quarters in the Capitol and furnishing them ran over into 
the period" covered by this report. Consequently our funds were so 
depleted for a greater pari of the time thai we were unable to average 
the monthly total of $1,000 which we had hoped to be able to spend for 
books, beginning with the increase in the Library Fund, February, 1909. 

LAW DEPARTMENT. 

The service of the Law Department has greatly increased as we have 
madt r resources known to the lawyers of the State, through circu- 
lars and personal contact. Books are going out more widely and more 
freely than heretofore. The bound volumes of Supreme and Appellate 
court records continue to lie in constant demand. In order to facilitate 
the use of these records a comprehensive index of the collection is being 
made. Upon completion it should be published and distributed to the 
judges and attorneys of the State, in whose hands it would dispense 
with much correspondence and delay now necessary in order to find out 
if we possess the records wanted. As the bound volumes of the records 
now Dumber more than 4. (»()(). this index will be a book id - not fewer 
than tiOO pages; and the cost of publishing it for free distribution could 
not well be met from our already overtaxed maintenance fund. 

LEGISLATIVE AND MUNICIPAL REFERENCE DEPARTMENT. 

The work of Ibis department received much commendation, especially 
during the 1009 session of the legislature, when information on many 
subjects was furnished more members than during the previous session. 

The development of the department was interrupted through the Eacl 
thai Mr. Bruncken resigned in October, 1909, and that .Mr. Campbell 
did not arrive until June 1. 1910. The addition of an assistant trained 
to the work will enable us to gather a larger mass of material and to 
be of service to a larger number of persons. Special emphasis will be 
laid on work with municipalities, debating clubs and individuals desir- 
ing information on current, social and economic questions; as well as 
to continue our legislative reference service. 

This department, which until June 1, 1910, has been called the Socio- 
logical Department, will henceforth be known by the title given at the 
head of this section of this report. 

REFERENCE DEPARTMENT. 

The work of this department is. to a large extent, carried on by cor- 
respondence ; in many cases books themselves are not shipped to the

person desiring information, but an extract of the matter wanted is 
made. The character of the information requested is such that satis- 
factory answers are often not obtainable in the smaller local libraries; 
and subjects which at first sight often appear simple enough now and 
then require very diligent research, extending through three or four 
days. At the present time there is one great drawback to a largely, 
increased use of our books by out-of-town borrowers; and that is the 
almost prohibitive cost of shipping books by either express or mail. A 
mure reasonable rate would enable those living at a distance to borrow 
the books which they really need. Nevertheless there has been a con- 
stantly growing demand for books and study collections from public 
libraries, high schools, clubs, granges, and individuals. The extension 
of the county library system will result in placing the collections of the 
State Library more readily at the command of the people of the State. 

Recently the Reference Department has done much in gathering infor- 
mation not obtainable in printed form; as, for example, the very 
thorough summary of the subject of library instruction in normal 
schools of the United States, which was presented at the 1910 session of 
the California Library Association. We consider such work of high 
importance and will in the future lay greater emphasis on this phase 
of reference activity. 

CATALOG DEPARTMENT. 

The lines of work indicated in previous reports have been continued. 
The cataloging of the current accessions has taken a greater propor- 
tion of time than hitherto, as the number of books bought has been so 
much larger. Following the work in the Law Department, the books 
on history and travel in Asia, Africa, and South America were com- 
pletely recataloged, as well as the collection of books in what is known' 
as the "art room." The books on American history and travel, general 
and local, are now in process of recataloging and will soon be finished. 
The work of this section has shown that the Library is surprisingly 
rich in early American travel and local history. 

The work of this department has again been hampered by the resig- 
nation of several assistants, nearly all of whom left for better positions 
elsewhere. 

Book numbers are now being gilded on the backs of the books, instead 
of being written on white labels and shellaced over; the number in gold 
does not disfigure the volume and will last as long as the book itself. 

During the period covered by this report 38,909 cards, representing 
23,304 volumes, were added to the catalog.

CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT. 

The work of {fathering infonnat ion about California artists, authors, 
musicians, pioneers, and early settlers has been earned on with much 
success. .Many of the persons who return the cards with the informa- 
tion requested send us photographs, reproductions, and autographed 
copies of books and compositions. At the present time we have on Hie: 
184 artist cards. 
856 author cards. 
90 musician cards. 
1,119 pioneer and early settler cards. 
Recently we have been able to secure many photographic reproduc- 
tions of the works of California artists. 

Much of the time of one assistant is spent in newspaper indexing. 
The period covered by this card index to the newspapers, which con- 
tinues to prove of exceeding great value and use. is 1846-1889 and 
1902-1905; with a total of about 150.000 cards. 

We have been fortunate in securing 34,440 items copied on cards 
from the newspaper index compiled by Winfield J. Davis. 

DOCUMENTS DEPARTMENT. 

The Documents Department was organized in April, 1909. for the 
purpose of caring for our large and growing collection of state and 
national official publications, and of distributing the California state 
documents which a law passed during the 1909 session of the legislature 
gave into the hands of the State Librarian. The department acknowl- 
edges and enters on a check list all United States, state and foreign pub- 
lications received by the Library. Besides current California publica- 
tions, which are distributed to the libraries in America and abroad, we 
have a stock of older state documents which are available for exchange 
purposes. The Weinstock "Report on Strikes and Lockouts." consist- 
ing of 1.2:51) copies, was distributed by the department. Ordinarily, 
however, the number of copies of any publication received from the 
State Printer does not exceed 50 copies. 

According to the provisions of an act approved March 20. 1909 (Stat- 
utes. 1909. page 538). seventy-five per cent of all reports and other pub- 
lications of state officers, commissions, and departments were to be 
delivered by the State Printer to the State Librarian for distributions 
No provision was made in this law. however, for meeting the expense 
of such distribution; consequently the law has remained inoperative. 
The 50 copies now received by the Library are used as exchanges and 
are given to the libraries of the State. The need of a thorough reorgani- 
zation of the whole system of state publications and their distribution 
is apparent. The Library is willing, under proper conditions and sup- 



REPORT OP THE STATE LIBRARIAN. 



13 



port, to undertake the work; because it is evident in so doing that the 
State could be saved money, and especially that by some adequate plan 
of distribution more satisfactory exchange relations with other states 
and nations could be established. 

EXTENSION DEPARTMENT. 

Tins department was established in 1903 and began work in Decem- 
ber of that year by sending out traveling libraries. These libraries, 
sent from one center, in a state the size of California, could not possibly 
solve the problem of furnishing adequate library facilities to the resi- 
dents outside of cities. They are sent and will continue to be sent until 
the people can have something better. The free public library in the 
smaller towns is also not a success. Its income must of necessity be 
too small. So the main effort of the Extension Department is directed 
toward becoming fully informed about library conditions in California 
and elsewhere, and trying to assist in the development of a successful 
and economical library system for California. 

The study club work has been transferred to the Reference Depart- 
ment, that being the logical headquarters of such activities. 

Traveling Libraries Division. 

There are now 478 communities in California" that have formed 
library associations and have the privilege of borrowing State traveling 
libraries. This is an increase of 77 over two years ago. During the last 
two years 1.325 libraries have been sent out and 1,327 returned. For 
the libraries returned, the records show 37,288 borrowers and a circula- 
tion of 113,871, divided as follows: 70,711 fiction; 29,068 juvenile; 
14,032 miscellaneous. Only ten new libraries have been made up, the 
total now being 284 (14.200 vols.). The earlier sets are still as fre- 
quently requested as the later ones, and the demand for 1 raveling libra- 
ries from new communities without libraries facilities, does not more 
than counterbalance the falling off from counties that are starting the 
county free library and no longer need the use of the State traveling 
libraries. So, as during the last four years, the new books bought 
for the traveling libraries will doubtless be almost entirely to replace 
worn-out copies. 

Public Libraries Division. 

The work of this division for the last two years has been the working- 
out of the county free library plan. The time of the two library organ- 
izers has been spent in organizing county libraries under section 12 of 
the county library act passed by the legislature of 1909. The county 

•Of these 478, there are 65 that are not borrowing at the present time because a 
public library has been established in the community, the local library no longer m-cds 
the help or the community now has a deposit in a county system. Tills number will 
grow rapidly as the counties start the county free libraries.

library for Sacramento County was mentioned in our last report, but 

now the record of county libraries established stands as follows: 

Sacramento County — Established October 1, 1908 Annual amount $4,000 00 

Santa Harbara County — Established February Hi. 1010 Annual amount 5,000 00 

San Joaquin County -Established March 7. 1010 Annual amount 5,200 00 

Fresno County — Established March 12. 1910 Annual amount 4,000 00 

Madera County— Established May 3. 1910 Annual amount 4,500 00 

Merced County — Established June (>. 1910 Annual amount 6,500 00 

Tulare County — Established June 10, 1910 Annual amount 4,000 on 

Assistance is also given libraries and librarians through correspond- 
ence and through the loaning of anything they need from the collection 
which the division is rapidly building up on all subjects of library 
economy. 

One of the hindrances to a freer use of the Stale Library by persons 
living at a distance from Sacramento has been the heavy expense of 
transportation which the borrower has had to bear. The library is now 
paying express charges both ways on the traveling library sets; as the 
county systems are established we will be relieved of this expense. The 
State Library proposes to pay all express charges on its loans to the 
various county systems; a plan which will result eventually in giving 
every citizen of the State access, without cost, to the splendid collections 
of books which we have. 

Books for the Blind Division. 

The Books for the Blind Division is endeavoring to furnish reading 
matter to all the blind people of the State, as well as to those who are 
partially blind, or who have weak eyes. To this end books and maga- 
zines in five different types are loaned to those who can already read, 
and alphabet sheets and instruction books to those who can not read, but 
wish to learn. During the last two years a few hooks and magazines in 
European Braille have been added to the library, and have created much 
interest. Books, that are requested in any type, are purchased as soon 
as possible. The division is making a collection of writing appliances 
and games. The collection of games includes playing cards in American 
Braille, New York point and Moon, checkers with indented squares, 
dominoes with raised pips, authors in American Braille, and a cut-up 
puzzle. The writing appliances and games are loaned as samples, so 
that the blind can try the different styles of appliances and games 
before buying them, and both are in constant demand. 

There are now 1,330 accessions, an increase of 555 in the last two 
years. The types represented are New York point. American Braille. 
European Braille. Moon and Boston line letter. Music is in three of 
these types, New York point. American Braille, and Moon. The total 
borrowers are 366, a gain of 7!) in the last two years, and 7.522 loans 
were made from July 1, 1908, to June 30, 1910; 1,498 more loans than 
were made in the previous two years.

NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES. 

Our quarterly publication, "News Notes of California Libraries," 
we believe, is filling a place in the library work of this State especially, 
and in that of the nation generally, in an altogether gratifying manner. 
It is certainly doing an admirable service to each progressive library 
of California by showing just what every library of the State is accom- 
plishing. Besides a list of libraries with notes and statistics each num- 
ber generally contains information on some larger subject of library 
activity, notes on the State Library, together with a list of our acces- 
sions for the preceding quarter and reports for the work of California 
Library Association. We have every reason to believe that this publica- 
tion is highly approved of by the best librarians of the United States ; 
and naturally we are proud of its record. 

BRANCHES OF THE STATE LIBRARY. 

During the 1909 session of the legislature the law governing the State 
Library was so amended as to permit the establishment of branches or 
deposit stations in various parts of the State. The authorities of the 
library are perfectly willing to do anything which will make the use 
of its collections easier; and tried to arrange for quarters for a branch 
in the Ferry Building at San Francisco. They also thought it desirable 
to establish another branch at Los Angeles. In the first case, the Ferry 
Building is already crowded and no space is available; but it is hoped 
that future enlargements of the building may provide quarters, at this 
point, so easily accessible to Berkeley, Alameda, Oakland, San Fran- 
cisco, Palo Alto, etc. In the second case, the library fund is far too 
small to find anything at all with which to rent suitable quarters in Los 
Angeles; so both these projects are in abeyance. 

One request for a deposit station was received from the State Univer- 
sity at Berkeley. No definite list of books was given. When it was 
explained that the colleges of the State are permitted to borrow such 
books as they may need to supplement their own collections and to keep 
them any length of time within reason; and that the State University 
had in times past frequently availed itself of this privilege the request 
for a lot of books, which in the end might not prove to be at all the ones 
needed, was not renewed. The library stands ready at all times to serve 
tlie student with books in such numbers and on such terms as will bring 
best results. The establishment of deposit stations and branches in 
various parts of the State would no doubt enable the State Library to 
better its service ; but in order to make a success of such an undertak- 
ing a very material addition to the library fund is necessary.

OUR QUARTERS. 

We have now lieeii in our remodeled quarters in the Capitol long 
enough to learn their short comings. In the tirst place it is exceedingly 
inconvenient and expensive to administer a library whose books are scat- 
tered, as ours are. from basement to fourth floor, on which again they 
are spread out the whole length of the building. Under the best 
arrangement of classes of books possible members of the staff are com- 
pelled many times a day to climb several Mights of very strep, circular 
stairways and to travel many hundreds of feet of Moor space. The effect 
upon the women members, especially, is bad: and much energy is need- 
lessly used up which should be devoted to the legitimate work of the 
library. 

Again, the fourth Hour on which about half of our people work is an 
unusually uncomfortable place; not only for members of the staff, but 
also for the users of the general and California collections. The ceiling 
on that floor is only 10 feet 8 inches and the air space above is insuffi- 
cient to be of much protection from the heat of the sun. As a result 
our people suffer durimr the summer months; and users of the library 
are few. During the winter the fourth floor is decidedly uncomfortable 
on account of the cold. .Makeshifts in the way of gas stoves only add 
to the discomfort by befouling the air. As it is not possible with the 
space at our command to have reading and workrooms any place except 
on the fourth floor of the building, comfort of readers is interferred 
with, and efficiency of our workers is prevented in attaining its highest 
Level, both in summer and in winter. 

The quarters of the Law Department, especially, have become very 
much crowded, necessitating undue squeezing of books upon the shelves, 
interfering with their freest use and taking up much time of an assist- 
ant in shifting sets to make a little more room for growth. We can not 
long continue in this room without adding eases, which will encroach 
upon the already limited space for tallies which we now have. 

The room given over to the legislative reference work is too small; 
and its single window gives insufficient light and ventilation. During 
cloudy weather it is necessary to work here by artificial light: as it also 
is in the Law Department. 

The state and national documents collections, numbering several 
thousand volumes, are now on the shelves in the basement of the 
Capitol. In order to get all of these books in the space at our command 
it was necessary to stack the rooms very close and high. Artificial lighl 
must be used at all times. These quarters are so dark and damp that 
books near the floor are subject to mildew. 

One of the greatest inconveniences connected with the present library 
quarters is the lack of a library elevator. Only during the session of the 



REPORT OF THE STATE LIBRARIAN. 



17 



legislature are the two elevators in the building both running; ordi- 
narily the one at the end of the Capitol away from the main entrance to 
the library on the fourth floor is being operated. Consequently, in 
order to get to the reading room a person must traverse the length of 
the building twice. Such elevator service makes it tedious for readers 
to get into the library and makes the passage of the members of the 
staff from* one floor of the library to another very slow, if the elevator 
is used. On Sundays there is no elevator service, and those who want 
to use the library from 10 a. m. to 3 p. m. are compelled to climb four 
stories to do so. 

The demand for space in the capitol from the other state officers is 
such that the library quarters could immediately be put to good use, 
were a library building constructed. 

A LIBRARY BUILDING. 

The time has come when California might well consider following the 
example of several other states in the matter of providing a building 
for the State Library. In 1903 Idaho appropriated $15,000 to erect a 
building for the state library and supreme court, In 1905 Nevada 
appropriated $40,000 for a like purpose. In 1907 Connecticut appro- 
priated $1,500,000 for the erection of a building for the state library, 
a memorial hall and the supreme court, In 1906 New York provided 
for the erection of a building for the Education Department, includ- 
ing the state library and the state museum of national history, at a 
cost of not more than $3,500,000, excluding cost of site. 

California naturally would not be satisfied or served with a building 
for state library and supreme court costing so little as the sums appro- 
priated by the first two states named above ; nor would it be necessary 
for her to spend a sum equal to that appropriated by the latter. The 
main thing is that something be done; for at the best a number of years 
would pass before a building could be made ready for occupancy, and 
meanwhile the hindrances to the most effective work in our present' 
quarters are not growing fewer, as our collections increase and lines of 
work now in hand are further advanced. 

OUR FUND. 

The increase in our monthly fund from $3,500 to $5,000 has enabled 
us to do many things which hitherto were out of the question. The staff 
of the library has been increased by the addition of about ten persons, 
enabling us to do very much more in the work of cataloging current 
accessions and of recataloging the older parts of the library, to keep 
an assistant on the work of indexing old files of newspapers, to create 
a new department for the care of state and national documents, to 
add an assistant in the Legislative Reference Department, to buy

more hooks, and. in short, to do t he work of the lihrary in a manner 
more nearly satisfactory than ever before. Still we rind that our pres- 
ent income is not sufficient. We believe it desirable to purchase at least 
$1,000 worth of books per month: during the past fiscal year we were 
able to find less than $!).(•()() for this purpose. And while our staff has 
increased in size since the last biennial report, it is still not large enough 
to do the work which it is desirable should he done. This Lack of funds 
can not be attributed to the large salaries paid our people: for the most 
cursory comparison of our salary roll with that of any other depart- 
ment in the capitol will prove that we are paying our workers — not 
excluding the State Librarian, who. of course, is not paid out of the 
library fund — from 25 to 50 per cent less, position for position. 

Consecpiently. if the State Lihrary is to maintain its position among 
the libraries of the nation, if it is to be enabled to develop the work 
already so well begun with the counties, if it is to. serve the people of 
the State well and profitably, further increase in our funds is urgently 
needed. 



The table giving Information concerning libraries of California, which hitherto has 
been made an appendix to the library report, is omitted. The information contained 
therein is kept on (lie in the State Library and is at all times accessible to those inter- 
ested. Furthermore, much of this information is printed, with additions and correc- 
tions each quarter, in "News Notes of California Libraries."
